In shadowed Origins, Kyley is a young woman held captive all her known life. Her psychopathic guardian, Roth, intends to use her paranormal abilities toward his own ends, including mass annihilation and chaos.
When Kyley sees a chance for escape, however slim, she takes it…and finds there are other paranormals willing to help her.
Taylor’s telekinesis and special-ops training granted him seamless passage to work with Kenner’s paranormal unit. When he rescues a young woman from the clutches of her psychopathic guardian, he’s unprepared for the emotional backlash created by their connection.
Through the following months, Taylor helps Kyley adapt to freedom, social situations, but most of all - his own gentle touch after years of torture.
“First of all, what I feel for you isn’t pity, nothing close. Second, you’ll heal in time, both body and soul. We’ll take all the time you need. I don’t ever want to put fear in you. We’ll wait and heal until you’re ready.”
“Ready for what?
Taking a deep breath, he then sighed. “Me.” Even though she wasn’t ready to hear this, he could no more keep his mouth shut than stop the sun from rising.
“You? What do you mean?”
“I want to be with you, Kyley. Help you heal, help you strengthen your abilities and make you strong, be there if you stumble along the way, share in your victories.”
“How can you bear to look at me? You must’ve seen my videos.” Tears collected in her eyes and traced a path down her cheeks.
